Servery windows are becoming a popular option for Perth area homeowners who want to remodel or modernise a kitchen. So, what is a servery window and why is it so popular:
As you may have guessed by the name, a servery window is designed to allow food service out of a kitchen. The main feature of a servery window that differentiates it from similar designs is longer sill that allows you to place food on it. At Fremantle Door & Window Company, we create custom servery windows made of sustainable timber and locally manufactured WA glass.
There are two popular designs for servery windows: Aneeta windows and bifold windows.
Aneeta windows are known as “sashless windows.” They consist of two double-hung panes of glass: a fixed pane and a movable pane. They move in the same manner as a traditional window, but without the outer frame. We use timber to build the jamb and the extra large sill. Usually, the movable pane is the one on the bottom. It moves up and allows easy passage of food to your patio, garden or alfresco living area.
The advantage of this style is that the sashless design allows for an unobstructed view because there are no sashes, mullions or transoms. It’s like looking outdoors through a continuous pane of glass. In addition, the window opens straight up so it doesn’t take up any extra space when you open it.
Bifold windows are a series of panes with timber frames and hinges. They fold in on each other in series. They can be built with as little as two panels or as many panels as you need, depending on width. Some kitchens are built with wide openings using four or more panels. The panels usually open to one side. While an Aneeta window only allows 50% opening, a bifold window opens more than 90%.
The main advantage: the opening and ventilation are superior to other types of windows.
